The rise in gold and silver prices over the last few years have inspired many people to start buying gold and silver bullion and that translated into a passion for collecting coins.
To take advantage of the recent upswing in the public’s interest in gold bullion coins, Sometimes they buy coins back from the secondary market (i.e. from regular coin dealers), put them in a presentation box and then sell them to the unsuspecting public at huge premiums (nice work if you can get it eh?).
Frustrated after three days of dealing with their customer service, we filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. Because their website guarantees payment within 24 hours (actually, if you read their site, they claim they are the only company in their industry to do this, and they don’t), it was filed under false advertising and failing to abide by guarantees. This was 5 days after they received our package, and we got payment only after we filed our complaint.

You can purchase all kinds up of big silver world coins and medals from 2 ounces in size up to a kilo in size, and sometimes, for just a small premium over the melt value of the silver.
